The McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA is a unique Centre that aims to inspire students and the Western Australian community to become active citizens in our local, regional and global communities through its internship program, academic units and events.
Riley recently completed a Bachelor of Science (Sports Science, Exercise and Health) at the University of Western Australia. With a particular interest in AFL, Riley completed his practicum placement at the West Coast Eagles Football Club and successful applied for an internship with Fair Game through the McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA.
Through his internship, Riley delivered recycled sporting equipment and fitness programs to under-serviced remote Aboriginal and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. After travelling to Karijini National Park to run sport programs for local children from Tom Price, Karratha and Port Hedland, Riley became interested in sports development and he plans to return to UWA as a postgraduate student.
